AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Pine Lake, Rhinelander, WI 54501 |

On our property, the most bars a person can get from the AT&T tower is two or if they are really lucky and it is a good day, sometimes three. Reception is terrible out here. Most calls are dropped instantly. We have to use the land line to make any successful calls.

AT&T pretty much lied to me just so I would do an upgrade and stay with them. 3G in january is what I heard... now, I hear august? I pay $220 a month for 2 iphones, what is the point if you can barely use the data plan because it is so dang slow? Im about ready to change to verizon. Pretty sure AT&T makes enough money off of their customers to get 3G..its crazy.

Verizon

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Just Off Hwy. 8 Tween Tomahawk and Rhinelander, Rhinelander, WI 54501 |

Extremely frustrated-no reception in or near my home-was NOT a problem with Alltel, just since Verizon took it over. What's worse is the crap I have to put up with to try and get this fixed-Excuses up the wazzoo, false promises and then to be told that unless their techs authorize an early out of the contract that I would inccur penalties if I attempt to drop them and go to anther provider--where the hell is consumer protection let alone a company who does what's RIGHT. appears to me to be a failure on their part to provide the service I am contarcted for making ANY contract null and void. Very Pissed.

I have 2 bars on a good day but drops calls if you move the phone. All Cell companies appear to have poor service East of Rhinelander. AT&T has same problems. Allltel seemed to have better coverage before they were bought out by Verison.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | S. Shore Dr. | Timber Dr., Rhinelander, WI 54501 |

Throughout the city I lose reception all the time. I can be talking just fine with full bars and suddenly I get a dropped call and look that it has no bars. A second later I will have full bars and call again. Absolutely no service where I work just 3 miles outside of the city to the East on Lake Thompson (Holiday Acres Resort). Reception on S. Shore Dr.is none existant to very spotty. Reception on Hwy. 8 west is very spotty past Tomahawk WI. I am very disappointed with this service. When it was Alltel reception was great. Now it sucks. Hey Verizon! Can you hear me now?

On Lake Mildred - single bar every once in awhile. Hwy. 8 and parts of 47 (closer to Rhinelander) I get good reception. In Rhinelander - Never had a problem - good reception. Minoqua (even on the lake) I get good reception.

Alltel

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Rhinelander In General, Rhinelander, WI 54501 |

I do agree with previous posts. I can make a call anywhere and nobody else that I know of has the coverage around here that Alltel has. Even outside of Rhinelander where there's not many people I don't have a problem. I have a lot of family and relatives that live around the city but the coverage is good everywhere.

Sprint

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | HWY 47 -between Lake Mildred Area and Minocqua, Rhinelander, WI 54501 |

Horrible, horrible. I have been with Sprint for awhile (w / several different phones) and NONE of them work in N. Wisconsin. They will work if your in the city of Rhinelander, but travel just a few miles, and they're completely dead. I have a friend who uses Alltel, and her phone always works. Occasionally, I can get reception while IN MINOCQUA- but it's extremely poor and really isn't worth trying to call someone.
